From January 14 to 28, Rise Against Hunger locations across the U.S. are honoring one of the most influential leaders in U.S. history â€” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. With the help of thousands of volunteers, we will be able to package over 3 million Rise Against Hunger meals, which will be sent all around the globe, in remembrance of the Dr. Kingâ€™s lifetime of service.
Dr. King once said, â€œWhy should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life? There is no deficit in human resources. The deficit is in human will.â€
This month, Rise Against Hunger is dedicated to answering Dr. Kingâ€™s call and quite literally â€˜feedingâ€™ his dream of a world without hunger. We are grateful for the volunteers across the nation who spent their day off in service of others, and for all of the volunteers who are making a difference this month!
